Anxiety is ADHD’s most common comorbid condition. Research shows that emotional regulation difficulties play a central role in sparking anxiety in adults with ADHD.

Over the last four months, these challenges have felt overwhelming as we’ve worried about the global pandemic and how it might affect our lives and our families. Here, ADHD expert J. Russell Ramsay outlines how these worries affect ADHD symptoms and coping strategies during these unprecedented times, how to handle anxiety effectively, and how to push beyond our fears to achieve a resilient mindset. The bottom line: Adults with ADHD can develop skills to manage anxious feelings instead of allowing them to rule our lives. Here is how to get started.
